Jill of all trades, master of none! Not sure what I’m supposed to do with all the incredible experiences I’ve been able to dabble in – modern dance, yoga, theatrical lighting design, DJ & event promotion, restaurant management, Doula training, 9 years of Vegetarianism and 2 years of Veganism growing up, cooking (I LOVE IT!), and now ChiRunning…  I love my husband more than words can say, and love my cats like they’re my children.  My “big plans” for the future include faster marathons, giving birth, and raising well adjusted kids (LOL) who possibly play for the NHL (aka our version of winning the lottery)!

I discovered I love to run at age 30. Where, oh where were you all my life, this amazing love?!? Races to date:
